I'm not a professional historian, I'm a practitioner with a desire to know more of technology's history, and to become better versed in the critical discourse surrounding it. In my work I focus on open, verifiable Internet measurement and research, usable open-source privacy and security tools, open-source "critical infrastructure" and how to keep it healthy (the core assumptions many rely on, but few maintain). I'm interested in these things, other things, and in developing a better critical approach to computing and technology and their role.

Graduated 2013 from Bowdoin College with a bachelor's degree in Math; now doing data graphics, web graphics, news apps, and a smattering of other stuff for Bloomberg Businessweek. Followed a link by Paul Ford (@ftrain on Twitter) to this list. Interested in interfaces and cybernetics, steering systems. Don't really have a clue what I'm doing, but it seems to orbit those interests. Pursued an independent study in mathematical notation as an interface that didn't really go anywhere. I hope to finish it one day.

I'm interested in text analysis and data visualization; my more recent research has focused on the methodology and opportunities of working with historically collected data, particular the census and shipping logbooks digitized as early as the 1920s and 1930s. I'm also probably teaching a history of computing class in 2015-2016, so I want to be on the list mostly to steep in references for that.

I've been hearing about the list lately because of the Morozov thing.
